IE is inlet error. (failed to reach set water level within 8 minutes)
You have cleaned the inlet screens. Make sure there is water up to the inlets. (disconnect hose and put end into drain or a bucket and turn valve on to make sure) Re-connect hoses and turn valves back on. Make sure hoses are not kinked. If still no water fill, you should take the top off the machine (bottom screws on the plastic retainers on the back side of the top, then from in front of the machine, push back with a sharp push of the palms of your hands on the L and R side of the top, to push it back about 2 inches, then lift the top off) and then check to see if you are getting any power (120 volts AC) to the water valves when you start a cycle. (Again, you should not get code IE for aprox. 8 minutes) No power to at least one coil on water valve = bad control board. Power to at least one coil, but still no water fill = bad water valve.
(by the way, the LE code is a capital L and E)

Cycle takes forever


IE is Inlet Error. Turn off the water valves behind the washer and remove the hoses from the machine end. Look inside the spot the hoses were attached to, and use a plier to pull out the screen and clean it out. (probably only need to do the cold side) Re-instert screen(s), re-attach hoses, and turn valves back on. (Also, make sure hoses are not kinked behind machine.) Times displayed are estimates, and vary due to water fill rates, and load type and size. In your case, the water fill rate is the problem.

I purchased an LG front loader washer last year in October, Luckily I purchased the extended warrenty. I had to have a repair man come out as I was stumped too. I had washed some rugs in there and it plugged up the pump. The repair man told my husband that the inlet is very small and there are lots of things that could plug the pumps up. If you are handy could tackle this but I think it is best to call someone. My husband is handy at fixing just about anything and he told me to take my rugs to the laudry mat. :(

I have an LG WM1814CW not getting .


Did you check the simple things first?
Often, one of (up to) three screens are in line with both water feeds; one at each end of the connecting hose, still another at the input to the control valve.

I thank you for your support on fixing my OE error. I cleaned out my filter on the bottom left hand corner of my machine. Problem fixed. Be aware that when you unscrew your filter, you may have a lot of water draining.

You have a stuck cold water solenoid valve.
Try openning the machine and tap on the cold solenoid valve.
If this dowes not work, you may have to replace the valve.
